Here we ditch the taco shell and use a hollowed-out avocado to hold a spicy turkey and black bean taco filling. The flesh of the avocado gets mashed with lime juice and cilantro for a quick and easy guacamole topping. Source:, February 2018

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add ground turkey, onion, chili powder and salt. Cook, stirring with a wooden spoon and breaking up large pieces of turkey, until cooked through, 4 to 6 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in black beans and salsa.

  • Carve out the flesh of each avocado half with a spoon, leaving about a 1/4-inch border all around. Transfer the scooped flesh to a small bowl. Add cilantro and lime juice; mash with a fork until chunky-smooth.

  • Fill each avocado half with about 1/2 cup of the turkey filling (they will be very full). Top each with 1 teaspoon cheese and some of the guacamole.
